New FORM exhibition Painting Power explores ritual, art and land in a series of potent artworks by Aboriginal artists living in remote Australia. The show encompasses works from art centres across Australia, including Munupi Arts, Warlukurlangu Artists, Ikuntji Artists, Mimili Maku Arts and Tjala Arts.

Painting Power curator Sharmila Wood said the exhibition considered the significance of art to Aboriginal life and connection between the physical and spiritual realms. The exhibition draws together works which reflect concepts of ritual in Aboriginal painting both as a means of expressing, song, dance and ceremony, as well as creating meaning and making sense of the world.

Painting Power will open from 6-8pm on 5 May at The Goods Shed, Corner of Shenton Road and Claremont Crescent, Claremont and will run for six weeks.
